I have a HEX-USB+CAN that I bought from Ross-Tech when I bought my 2012 B8 A5. I'm looking at the 2019 B9 RS5, hopefully available sooner rather than later. Will this cable work with the newer platform, or should I be looking to upgrade it? Thanks.

The HEX-USB+CAN will talk to most, but not all of the modules in a B9. When you get the new car, you should upgrade to one of our current interfaces.

Doing it directly via Ross-Tech, it's a 2-step process.
1) Get an upgrade to 10-VIN HEX-V2.
2) After you receive it, get a VIN upgrade to Unlimited VINs.
See links on this page.

Yes, a HEX-V2 is compatible with the current Ibiza. But keep in mind that not every bit in every byte on every module can be documented.

Thanks, so I'd lke to enable drivin profile on my Xcellence (not Lux, in hindsight, really should have just bought Lux) by following:

Switch-on driving profile [WORKING]
1. Control Unit 19 (Gateway)
2. Extended Coding
3. Byte 8 (E8)
4. Activate Bit 4
(After this change, Byte 8 will change from "E8" to "F8")

Would that then enable driving profile? My intention is to have the individual setting that sets accellerator to sport, while sets steering to comfort.

Thanks,
PS> I appreciate you can't be 100% certain, but just a best-effort guess is fine. Thanks,

Drive mode is SWAP and activated by FeC.

Meaning You need to buy and activate it by dealer(or 3rd party).

Okay, but could I not use the followings to achieve linear throttle and comfort steering?

Thanks,

2. Adaptation
3. Driving profile
b. "Direct, controlled over threshold"

Steering response
1. Control Unit 44 (Steering Assistance) Code: 19249

Hi team
I'm upgrading my hex+can and I'm looking at the hex V2 however I need unlimited vin's for my shop.
I don't see unlimited vin on your website however my supplier in my country claims unlimited vin V2 is available.
Just wanted to double check before I purchased the wrong unit.
